Design and construction
This business device is pretty compact. It weighs 1.28 kg, while the profile sits at 17.5mm. It is built out of aluminum and plastic. We think it feels pretty well built, although there is some flex in both the lid and the base. Surprisingly, the lid opens easily with a single hand. Its hinges are smooth, and allow the display to lay all the way flat. Here, you can see the thin bezels around the matte screen. This laptop is offered with an HD Web camera, which is essential for meetings. In addition to that, there is a privacy shutter on top of it, as well as an optional IR face recognition scanner. Then comes the keyboard. It is one of the good units out there, and we find it extremely comfortable for typing. Its key travel is long enough, while the feedback is both clicky, and quiet for office use. Obviously, there is no NumPad here, but the speakers are placed on either side of the keyboard. Beneath it, there is the touchpad. It offers a smooth gliding experience and relatively good tracking. To its right, you get an optional fingerprint reader.
The HP Probook 430 G8 Core i5 11th Gen is equipped with the Intel Core i5-1135G7 is a quad-core, mid-range SoC designed to be used in ultra-light laptops. The Tiger Lake UP3 processor was introduced in September 2020. It features four Willow Cove CPU cores running at 2.4 GHz (base clock speed 28 W TDP) Boosting up to 4.2 GHz (1-core Boost). The all-core Boost clock speed sits at 3.8 GHz. This is a Hyper-Threading-enabled CPU, allowing for up to 8 concurrent processing threads. A sizeable performance-per-MHz boost is one of the multiple improvements of Tiger Lake compared to the older Ice Lake and Comet Lake product families. Core i5-1135G7 is compatible with dual-channel DDR4-3200 or quad-channel LPDDR4x-4267 RAM, supports PCI-Express 4.0 (4 lanes) and is capable of HW-accelerating AI workloads. Thunderbolt 4, USB 4 and Wi-Fi 6 support is partially baked into the chip. The i5 is manufactured on Intel’s second-gen 10 nm process marketed as Super-Fin that is supposedly comparable to TSMC’s 7 nm process that Ryzen 4000 series processors are manufactured on. Both the CPU cores and the iGPU enjoy access to 8 MB of L3 cache. The higher-end Core i7-11×5 parts are notable for their larger Level 3 cache size, faster iGPUs and higher clock speeds. Core i5-1135G7 is supposed to be permanently soldered to the motherboard (BGA1449 socket interface) and is thus not user-replaceable.
HP ProBook 430 G8 is equipped with a Full HD IPS panel. Its diagonal is 13.3-inch (33.78 cm), and the resolution – 1920 х 1080p. Additionally, the screen ratio is 16:9, the pixel density – 166 ppi, their pitch – 0.153 х 0.153 mm. The screen can be considered Retina when viewed from at least 53 cm (from this distance, the average human eye can’t see the individual pixels). The maximum measured brightness is 285 nits (cd/m2) in the middle of the screen and 278 nits (cd/m2) average across the surface with a maximum deviation of 6%.
On the left side, there is a security slot, a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) port, an audio jack, and a MicroSD card reader. Then, on the right, there is the charging plug, a USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 2) port with DisplayPort 1.2 support, a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1) port, and an HDMI 1.4b connector.
The speakers of HP ProBook 430 G8 are produce a sound of good quality. However, we found deviations across the entire frequency spectrum.
Now, we conduct the battery tests with Windows Better performance on HP Probook 430 G8 setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with. Here, you get a 45Wh battery that will last you for 10 hours and 44 minutes of Web browsing, or 8 hours and 20 minutes of video playback.
Business notebooks like HP Probook 430 G8 are famous for their simplicity, good looks, and stability. Ultimately, this is a fitting description for the ProBook 430 G8. We were really impressed by its input devices, which are on point for a laptop in this category. In addition to that, there are features like the privacy shutter, fingerprint reader, and optional IR face recognition scanner, which will improve your security. Plus, you get a hardware TPM 2.0 module.
